Can I roll for knowledge on the cutting edge of nanomachines and their current problems (to have an idea what's this breakthrough) and getting to know who Rita Lang is in her professional work?

Knowledge (Physical Science): 1d20+12 = 31

 

Computer (With the Online Research feat): 1d20+15 = 31

 

Pretty high rolls. That's past the Heroic threshold but she wasn't trying very much there; her version of skimming.

Great rolls, but as you said, just skimming.

 

Official stuff:

Rita Lang has been working on nanotech for more than 20 years. She has had many interesting theories about how nanomachines could be used to cure diseases, repair tissue and more, once the technology fully matures, at least. She has generally kept out of public, but is well known in academia. She has been with ArcheTech since ArcheTech West opened.

Generally speaking, Rita seems to be more of a planner than a doer, making the plans and theories, and leaving it to her assistants to actually build the nanomachines.

There has been several instances in the past of assistants or colleagues complaining about her being a perfectionist, firing others over mistakes. Rita claims that this has only been after several similar incidents.

Roll to see what Nicole knows about nanomachines, keeping in mind it isn't her specialty.

 

Knowledge (Technology): 1d20+15 (Skill Mastery use) = 25.

Keeping a mind that its not your specialty, you'd know the rough basics of nanomachines: Very tiny machines, that can be programmed for a variety of purposes. They have not seen much use in either public or private sectors yet, having been a mostly theoretical science, that has now evolved into an emerging technology. There are theories that they can be used to do anything from 3D printing to biochips, nanoassembly, use in medicinal fields and more. All the information you had been able to find on Dr. Lang kept her actual area of expertise for nanomachines intentionally vague.
